In northern Fujian Province, China, Jasmine Pearls are produced using just the bud of the tea bush. Harvested in spring and pan fired to neutralize their oxidizing enzyme, the slender green buds are stored until July. Then the tea is hand rolled into tiny pearls and placed amidst just-picked jasmine. This scenting process is repeated five times before the spent jasmine is removed to create the finest tea.
